Aaron Gwin’s race bike was stolen last night as the team were en route to the Fort William World Cup.
The Intense Factory team were stopping over in a hotel near Edinburgh airport last night when the van was broken into and Gwin’s large race bike was stolen. The van was left damaged and the trailer was also targeted but nothing else seems to have been taken. A cash reward has been offered for the bike’s return.
Aaron was switching between a large and XL frame in Maribor so hopefully he will still have a frame and enough parts to practice and race with in Fort William this weekend. We’ll update this story when we get more details.Update 14:00 PST:
Team Manager Todd Schumlick says that the team has another Large M29 being built tomorrow for Aaron thanks to Intense UK!
